New Iberia Bicyclist Dies In Saturday Night Crash
Bicyclist and New Iberia resident Tony Parker, AKA “3rd Gear,”died Saturday night after getting into a crash with a jeep in the 500 block of East St. Peter Street.
Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal says the jeep was driven by 22-year-old Alexander J. Livingston, also of New Iberia. Sheriff Ackal says Livingston was driving east on East St. Peter Street when Parker attempted to cross St. Peter, while on his bike, and turn into the path of Livingston’s jeep. That’s when the two collided, the crash killing Parker at the scene.
While Livingston was not cited for any traffic violation, a routine toxicology test was administered to determine if drugs or alcohol was a factor in the accident. The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division continues to investigate.
